selinux alternate home root
If you have selinux running and you want to use a home root directory
/home, you’ll need to make sure you set the correct
contexts or else things will be funky, eg. SSH will not work very well.
To fix this is actually pretty simple. You can look at the contexts
ls -Zld /home. It will look something like:
# ls -Zld /home drwxr-xr-x. 2 system_u:object_r:home_root_t:s0 root root 6 Mar 6 13:16 /home
If you create another directory, like
/rhome and you want it to have
the same contexts, you can use
chcon to set it.
# chcon -u system_u -r object_r -t home_root_t /rhome
And now SSH works! Magic.
